CIVIL RIGHTS BILL.
AX IMI'OIiTAXT DKCISION TO BE BENDKIIED.
IiAFAYETTE, Iiul., April 11. A colored
man named Barnes brought suit against a
prominent citizen this morning to enforce a
contract. The defendant, for answer, sets up
that the negro came into the State in viola
tion of the thirteenth article of the consti
tution of the State of Indiana, -which, under
pains and penalties, prohibits negroes iiom
coining into the State, and debars them from
all rights ro enforce contracts, et.
Plait tiff demuvs to the answer, maintaining
that tue icenth article is void and of u.
effect, because: 1. It is in contravention of
the letter an I spirit of the Constitution of
the United Stales. 2. It is in direct coiiilicL
with the constitutional amendment abolish
ing slavery. 3. It is void under the iiis,t sec
tion of tiie Civil llights bill, which gives
all persons born in the United States iu;i
rigut to make an. 1 enforce contracts, any law,
statute, ordinance, regulation, or ,custom to
the contrary notwithstanding.
The tourL sustained the demurrer, and the
, defendant appeal to the circuit court, which
is now in scss.on.
The case -.vas submitted to-day, and after
argument of counsel.it was taken under ad
; visemeni. Judge Gest will probably render
ladeci i-'it to-morrow. Under the second
'set-lion of the Civil iiigats bill he can only
decide in favor of the negro, tor the reason
that an adverse decision would subject him
to tiie penalty of one thousand dollars' line
We arc glad Unit the first case under this
unewiisUUtiioii.il law arises in a State like
Indiana; and we are inclined to believe thai
tue occurrence of a few such cases in each oi
! tue noiiiiein States would bring the people
there to tlieir s.ense.
! Look at the points in the demurrer of the
negro : Tue lirst point is not wortu an arga-
liieiit, bec ause that provision iias existed i:i
I tae libliana Constitution for years, and wiieu
j h was a.iopted, Indiana might, under the
Federal CoustiUitiou, have established Sla
very and ivdtuedlhe blacks coming into tin
State to that condition. Certainly, liiett, un
less the recent amendment to the i'cdcrai
Cocstitaiioti is inconsistent with tue aiiu-ij
in (pustiuii, the latter is not unconstitutional.
Xow, nut amendment merely pro ides, U;..,,
that slavery .shall not c:;ist in the t;;i.cd
States, and, secondly, that Congress sha.i
have power to carry this prohibition of shi
Vcsy n:to eavcl. jsothing else than tins can
fairly be found m the auien- nneiil ; suit;.!
the artU ie in the Indiana Constitution ce.
t.iiniy does not establish slavery, ic foilow..
tuat eea tiie iitileileled Tedelal Const. u.lio.i
is in i:o wise in coniiiet with the liiaiaii .
The third point in the demurrer is that th :
article in .luestion is in eonriict with the tie..
civil rignts law. And quoud hK we agre.
Willi the demurrer; but we do not agree with
.t that the article is before " void." On the
contrarv, e believe that even the present Su
preme Court of the United States, notwith
standing ;.ii of its radical pivjudtccis ": ;
notv.itlistanilsr.g that Chief JiU-rice Cn -.s:;
i-.us already, iJtifi aria, pronounced u.i
pinion in" favor of the l::v. , would, it lios
ndiatia c i-e were brought ielore it, hold
that the id is vmcoi-.slituUoaiti. V e nop
thisease w ill be taken up. ihc;e could i.et

A newspaper correspondent tells a hard
story on Henry S. Fo tc, to the following ef
fect": When Foote was in the U. S. Se:-ate,
he fell asleep one day while Baldwin, of Con
necticut, was proposing on some law-point.- -Wesicott.
of i iorida, who was a great wag,
waked him up and took him to the lobby,
where lie repeated to Foote an invective
which he said Baldwin had pronounced
against Foote while he was asjeop. Foote
returned to the Senate Chamber in a great
rage, and as soon as Baldwin had concluded,
spring to his feet, and with the most extrav
agant gesticulation and liery personal d.-rtun-cialioii,
inveighed against him. Baldwin
listened willi astonishment.
At last Foote broke forth : "I will tench
the Senator a lesson, when he calls me the
arch-rept:d::itoi and a robber chief."
Bald v in immediately arose and vehement
!v denied that he had said anything of the
"What !" cried Foote, " Does the Senator
deny the fact ; does he dare to deny it ? When
I heard him w ith those ears !" Suiting the
action to the word, and seizing the attesting
org in with linger and thumb, he dragged
it thus visibly into the court. He was
greeted by roars of laughter. .-
The Boston I'ost retorts upon pome
'' smart" fellow in the followin manner : " The
person who sent us a copy of the Boston
J 'out with 'jackass' written upon the margin,
is requested to inform us at what stable he
can be found."
What French B.vxdt 13 made op in
New York. An investigation into some of
the illicit distilling operations which have
been carried on very extensively in Gotham,
elicited the fact that French brandy is man
ufactured from the worn-out rollers which
printers use to ink their types. These rollers
are made of glue and molasses, and it ap
pears when they are no longer tit for use they
arc taken and boiled, to separate the glue
from the saccharine matter contained in them,
and the latter substance, by distillation, is
converted into an alcoholic liquor from which
brandy is made. To persons of delicate taste
tins association of printers' rollers with the
popular liquid will not render the official
brandy more attractive ; but veteran bibbers
wirMinrdly be deterred from indulgence by
tlie nauseating reflection. Ph il, Kvus.
